The Fundamentals of the REAL Gospel

Published 2012

Don't get caught in the wrong net! There are false preachers with household names who are fishing for men and women to commit to their "gods" and not to the REAL Jesus. It is easy to get snared when our hearts are seeking God for the wrong reasons — and the outcome of our ignorance is death, not life.

Brought to you by an international team of volunteers, "The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel" is a seven-part MP3 series divided into 8 individual tracks. This series teaches with simplicity and with clarity who the real Jesus is — and the truth of HIS Gospel. It's exciting! It's challenging! And it's convicting! This series includes:

● easy-to-learn basics of the real Gospel that you can apply to your life
● simple-to-understand lessons that are powerfully explained by an inspired teacher
● profoundly detailed content to equip you with the ability to discern truth from false teaching
● mini-teachings on associated subjects interspersed throughout the series
● BOLD — but rational — commentary on controversial topics such as women in ministry

Under God's anointing and with His wisdom and knowledge, Rich Vermillion teaches The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel and explains how we can discern the truth of the Gospel from false and erroneous teaching. He exposes the deceptions and the heresies that are saturating the Christian world today.

The Christian world is flooded with doctrines that claim to stem from the Gospel of Jesus, yet they are in conflict — either obviously or subtly — with Truth of God's Word. The message in this series is simple and yet absolute: it is the fundamental truth of the REAL Gospel taught in a down-to-earth fashion that is easy to relate to and comprehend.

While this series is designed to enlighten the Christian with biblical truth, it firmly confronts several of the false "gospels" as well. Also known as "wolves in sheep's clothing," heretics are exposed as the message of the REAL Gospel is revealed. Beyond this, Rich actually explains how heretics weave their seemingly endless varieties of myths as he teaches how to easily identify the true from the false by providing:

● facts accurately researched for correct Scripture translation
● non-sectarian (non-denominational) instruction from the Bible
● prime examples of some of today's most well-known heretics and heresies
● popular "convenient doctrines," based upon logical fallacies, which false ministers use to ensnare vulnerable Christians

For several years Rich Vermillion has researched the Hebrew and Greek history of the Bible utilizing a library of authentic references and resources. The information gleaned from such intensive study is accurately relayed in this series to enable the listener to gain a fuller meaning of the original scriptures while in their proper historical setting. The cultural background of this time period has been thoroughly investigated and examined as well as the historical premise of the many English Bible translations that are available today. Though this series is "chock full" of meaty scriptural teaching and historical facts, many of them are relayed in such a simple way that even a child could comprehend them.

The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel explains the Gospel that Jesus gave to His apostles and exposes the heretics who are on the prowl to steal this vital truth from Christians. It teaches how Christians can discern the truth from the lies of the false teaching. Consequently, this series offers a refreshing alternative to an allegedly Christian market of "Bible teachings" that focus merely on what people can gain materially from God; on how Christians can improve their self-worth; and how Christians can gain power and fame in this world. It brings diversity to the Christian MP3 market with a complete series on The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel of Jesus.

As this series circulates you can expect the Internet to be flooded with these MP3's because people are tired of being "sold" religious fables by people who only want their money. They are now searching for the truth and this series is like none other before it. Therefore, the people who enjoy it are likely to listen to it again and again because they will want to get a better understanding of this FREE and REAL Gospel. And it's not only taught with enthusiasm and excitement, but also with a touch of humor.

FIRST, a quick lesson on how to download content from the Internet:

To download the files on a PC using Microsoft Windows, right-click with your mouse on the link to the file, and select “Save Target As” or “Save Link As” (or you might see something else similar to these listed in the menu, depending on which browser you’re using).

On the Macintosh, either right click the link (if you have a mouse that permits that) or hold the button down while the mouse is over the link. When the resulting menu comes up, simply select “Save Target As”.

If you are using a laptop and do not have a “right” button to “click,” then most computers substitute a keyboard-click combination. Hold down the “control” or “Ctrl” key on your computer keyboard while clicking on a link, and you should then see the same menu appear that was just mentioned above.

SECOND, suggestions on how to specifically download this series from this page:

The EASIEST way to download the entire series is to do it all at one time. Simply look in the menu bar on the LEFT side of this page (further above) for the link marked “VBR ZIP” under the category “Play/Download.” Either right-click or control-click that link, and then save it to your computer. (It will take a while to download, depending upon your connection speed.)

Once the file is fully downloaded to your computer, simply “double-click” on the ".zip" archive file that you downloaded (i.e. click on the link twice, and very quickly). Your computer may then warn you that this is a file from the Internet, and ask you if you really want to open it. This file is VERY safe to open. So affirm that you want to open it by clicking whatever button your computer provides for you to do so, and then your computer will “unzip” that file into a brand new folder within the same location as the original “zip” file.

Inside that new folder you will be able to see all the individual MP3 session files (eight in total, numbered from 1 to 7B). Simply double-click on session 1, and it should begin playing within your default media player on your computer. As you finish each session, simply close them out, and then “double-click” on the next session file within the numerical sequence in order to continue through the entire series one session at a time.

If you would prefer to download each file one at a time (perhaps because of a slower Internet connection speed), then see below for all the individual files listed. For most users, we recommend that you ONLY download the files in the column marked “VBR MP3,” and that you simply ignore any other versions that you may see (unless you know what they are and how to utilize them.)

A downloadable cover graphic file is also included below under "image file" for those who would like to promote this series upon their own websites, blogs, or on social media sites such as Facebook. It is redistributable under the same Creative Commons 3.0 license as the series itself, but all other rights are reserved.

THIRD, for those looking for instructions regarding other types of downloading options:

Additional types of download instructions (e.g. FTP downloads, Torrent, etc.) can also be found on the FAQs page. Click on the "About" tab at the very top of this page, and then click on "FAQs" when the resulting new submenu appears underneath. Then select "Downloading Content" from the FAQs page's menu.

Subject: Laugh, Cry and Shout with Rich!
What is the REAL GOSPEL? How can you distinguish it from the counterfeit gospels being preached today? Paul said in Galatian 1:8-9 "If anyone preaches ANY OTHER gospel than the one THEY (the apostles) preached, they are to be ACCURSED" (sent to eternal punishment). We had better know WHAT the REAL gospel is! With so many voices speaking today, it is a blessing to hear a CLEAR, BIBLICALLY sound voice in Rich Vermillion who is able to skilfully explain and define what the REAL gospel is. He lays a solid foundaion from both history and Scripture and teaches from an open heart, often baring his own heart before us. I laughed with Rich, I cried with him, and I shouted Hallelujah many times as I listened to this awesome series. It is equally valuable to new believers as it is to seasoned, mature ones. And unlike so many "teachers" out there, Rich is not making merchandise of the Body of Christ because he gives it away at no charge. Hearty recommendation!!

Subject: Sound Doctrine
I appreciate you teaching the body of Christ the fundamentals of sound doctrine! This is so much needed in the church today with the deception that Jesus warns will be in the last days. Thanks Rich for all of your hard work and teaching! I continue to learn from you as always...blessings.

Subject: How Refreshing!
I would highly recommend this riveting series. It is not only well researched but is presented in an interesting manner by an obviously gifted communicator. It is a doctrinally sound and cohesive message that will hold your interest while presenting you with the core fundamentals of the true, unadulterated, BIBLICAL Gospel. In this post modern church age which has so twisted and misrepresented the true Gosepl, I find that a series such as this is a gem worth holding on to. I can only hope that there will be more to follow.
Reviewer: VivK - - November 11, 2012
Subject: Very informative and enjoyable
I have to say this is the most comprehensive and enjoyable series I've ever heard on the subject of the gospel. It is obvious that Rich has thoroughly studied and researched this topic, both throughout the Bible itself, but also using other very scripturally reliable resources.

This series will bless you, no matter what spiritual level you are at. He starts very basic, even down to what Bible translations are the most accurate. But by the time you are done with this series, you feel like you have completed a Bible class that has equipped you to share the real Gospel with others.

Please give this MP3 a try. It will certainly be well-worth your time investment. Thank you, Rich, for these. This teaching is so needed in this time when heretics are a dime a dozen.
Reviewer: MrJaybee - - November 2, 2012
Subject: Excellent Series!
Whether you are a babe in Christ or a grizzled vet, you will absolutely enjoy this series on the fundamentals of the Gospel! Rich does an outstanding job of laying a great foundation for the series early on, as will be evidenced as you go further along.

This series is very informative! Some things I knew, some things were brand new to me, some things shed light on questions I had. Rich tells you numerous times not to take his word for it, but to search the scriptures for yourself. He makes it clear that this series is about the basic fundamentals of the Gospel, and not an indepth study, HOWEVER, you feel like it is really indepth.

Rich, please continue to let God use you as you do (this is for everyone involved in the series)...Your wisdom in teaching sound doctrine is needed in these last days.

Subject: Finally - the truth about the gospel of Jesus
The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel is a 7-part mp3 series taught by Rev. Rich Vermillion who elaborates on the basics of the gospel according to the Holy Bible. I have listened to many preachers and read dozens of books on the gospel over the years, but this is the first teaching I've ever encountered where the facts are deeply researched and the gospel is explained in an honest, truthful and clear manner - and without opinion, bias or personal benefit to the teacher.

Rev. Vermillion has endured extensive research into the history of the Bible, as well as into the original scriptures and their proper translation. Every fact he presents is totally supported by both Old and New Testament scripture. And, throughout the series he encourages us to not just take his word for what he's saying, but to study the scriptures and see the truth for ourselves. He explains what false doctrine is, how it came about and how we can avoid the trap of falling into its deception.

Even though he's spent months in prayer and preparation with his wife, Donna, he doesn't claim any credit or recognition for the production of this series, and he's giving it away free so that others can know the truth. This is amazing because there are very few - if any - preachers out there who actually give away their work. Most of them charge a fortune or require us to make some kind of painful commitment before we can get anything from them, and that gives me the impression that "God's work" has become "their business" for profit. And if that's the case, I have to wonder just how much of it is really inspired by God? But it appears that the Vermillion's focus is actually seeing souls brought out of the dark and into HIS salvation, and all for HIS glory.

This series of lessons is truly inspired and blessed by the Lord. I encourage everyone to download it and to study the Bible along with Rich so that you can know the truth and serve the Lord with a whole and pure heart. The lessons are dynamic, the narration is easy to follow and simple to understand, and the teacher's sense of humor keeps us tuned in and wanting more of the real gospel of Jesus.
